Goats on Argan trees in Agadir
The Argan tree is indigenous to Morocco and is known for its valuable oil, which is used in cosmetics, cooking, and medicine. The goats play an essential role in the production of Argan oil, as they help to disperse the seeds of the tree by eating the fruits and excreting the seeds, which are then collected and pressed to extract the oil. The sight of the goats on the tree is not only a delightful spectacle but also an intriguing insight into the local way of life and traditions.
After spending some time watching the Goats on Tree and taking pictures, the tour continues to a nearby Argan oil cooperative, where you can see the traditional process of extracting the oil and learn about its various uses and benefits. You can also purchase some authentic Argan oil products, such as soaps, creams, and cosmetics, as souvenirs or gifts.
Overall, the Goats on Trees trip from Agadir is a must-see attraction for nature lovers, animal enthusiasts, and curious travelers who want to experience something truly unique and unforgettable.
